Here is another Quick Tip with Earl. You will not have to download this one, as I have it all here for you.
You have just taken your prize winning photograph of the winning yacht of the Universe Yacht Race from There to Here. It was your only shot of the yacht crossing the finish line. And, unfortunately, your camera was tilted and the horizon was crooked in the image.
This shows you the number of degrees the canvas will be rotated and in what direction. This is for your information, all you need to do is click OK and your image will be rotated that amount and your photo will now have a horizontal horizon.
And that's all for this Quick Tip with Earl Number 2.
I understand that this has been made even easier in CS5. I don't have CS5 on my iMac so I don't know for sure. I believe it is after you have rotated the image using the Ruler Tool, in the Options Bar at the top there is a box you can click that will automatically crop the image to the right size to eliminate the white areas. I am not sure about this, but those of you who have CS5 may want to see what is in the Options Bar when you have done this.
I hope you have enjoyed this Quick Tip with Earl, even though it wasn't too quick.
If you prefer to have the Quick Tips as a PDF file to download so you can have a copy of it leave me a comment telling me that you would rather have them that way instead of directly in the blog.
Enjoy life! Have fun!
